    I saw this on Ebay but I think it is one of those Iraqi composite helmets not a US WWII liner but I may be wrong. Opinions please.

    Hi Graham, my first thought was " how much" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Looks like a Hawley liner, I would not be so sure about the the Period paint job though!

    I see what you mean about it being an Iraqi M-80, the thickness of the liner looks that way.

    The Riddell liner is significantly different than the Iraqi ( well South Korean ) versions in quality etc.

    Wayyyyyyy to pricey, I don't care if Eisenhower wore it !!

    Hope your well Mate.

    Gary.

    If it is a genuine Hawley then from what I can gather while yes to me it would be a price I would never dream of paying I dont think its expensive.
